General Discussion / Re: What's up everyone?

Check out https://forums.5meodmt.org/ which is a forum like this based on the medicine of Bufo Alvarius (5Meo-DMT).  It's next level medicine which is relevant for modern times in a day and age where AI and Virtual Reality will be pushed into the mainstream.

General Discussion / Any experienced sitters in the USA?
« on: July 02, 2018, 06:03:54 PM »
I'm still looking for experienced sitters in the USA.  I only know one guy who home base is in Miami Beach which is pretty close to me, but he charges $3500 just for the treatment but hase 15 year experience.  Anyone still do this, or at least would like to pm someone and get their phone #, I'm looking now to get RB and make TA an out of it and convince an friend who never done it to treat him first and then me.  I don't know if he's the right person, but I'm thinking to give him 1 gr of TA.  Looking for this month.

 I was curious if you did it and I buy the ceremony by yourself with a sitter or did you go to a clinic? I would like to find a sitter ;)

As far as Magnesium, I get the Epsom Salts 8lb bag for $5 at Walmart.  I don't know if you absorb magnesium through your skin well, but it's great for my back tension.

My friend from NYC sells a magnesium stick that you can charge up in distilled water and get magnesium that way.  Infographics and Youtube DIY videos here:  http://www.healingwaterbottle.com/Tesla_Alkaline_Stick.php

I stopped coming on here due to a few reasons, one of them was a major falling out with lalababa. 

I am not going into the details, but it was overwhelming so I decided it was easiest to part ways with her Eboka since she spent a lot of time here. 
She and I were friends and then she changed really quickly after falling off the wagon.  I started to drift away from everyone I had met through this site.

I haven't heard from her in a long time.  I figured out most of the people on this forum who now are on Facebook.  She looks like she's MIA.  Usually when you don't hear from someone in a long time, they 'fell off the wagon' or are going through severe depression (such as myself).

Over the years I noticed:  If you are/were a heroin addict...it doesn't matter how many years of clean time you have...once you relapse, you fall harder than you ever did before.  Even ibogaine loses it's magic after Grandpa kicked your ass and straightened you out, he doesn't have the good graces to make it easy after he gave you a 2nd chance to be reborn.

With all this talk about the father / mother spirits, it's interesting to see how someone life changes after they either have to take care of an aging biological member of their family.  Or if they get married and have a kid.  In my case it was my own mother while going through my own physical/mental problems.

Also noticed that KP looks like he got hitched and has a kid, probably why he dropped off the forums. ;)

I still chat with JohnnyBGoode. 
Just poking my head in to see if it's worth another go.  I always enjoy helping others, and am still in the world of health and wellness.   

Eboka introduced me to folks around the world, and was a huge outlet for me in during a freaky time in life that I am grateful to be past.  It's good to circle back.

I like these forums very much still, but if there are no people discussing it's like talking to a wall.  :-\

People don't post iboga diaries anymore or full blown flood reports.  Nowadays it's to post a testimonial to market an ibogaine clinic (which is lame).  I love reading the good, bad, and ugly..the raw grittiness of going through an iboga flood.

I plan on upgrading my computer technology and v-logging my own iboga flood with a caring sitter.  I live in Florida still and haven't found the right person.  It's been almost 10 years since my last flood!

Hi all,

I see that the forums have died or are on life support.  Thanks for the admin for keeping this alive since there is a treasure trove of information still on here if you just query the search engine.  A lot of old time members are on Facebook, so I'd like to drop a link of a growing community where you can talk about treatment, where to find a sitter, ordering iboga bark, TA, HCL etc...

Eboka Talk / Re: Happy to see the site back up!
« on: May 08, 2018, 07:16:03 AM »
It had been down for a quite a while, was hoping all of the great stories and data on here didn't get lost. Thanks to whoever brought it back.

Lol..I just logged back on today after months forgetting that this site existed!  I mean lots of classic posts here in the archives if you dig down deep.

What I miss the most is that people used to share knowledge and do detailed trip reports.  That's seems to have been lost because of presumably Facebook, the world's most popular social networking platform...which ironically is less about social networking as it is than this site used to be.

I'm back.  The above post is the last one I wrote since Eboka.info was down for months...is this forum back online? 

I've been on Facebook but got recently banned (in FB jail for 30 days lol), so I'm looking to reconnect to community.

Are any of the old-timers still on here?  GratefulDad...last I read he was in a coma or really messed up from an iboga flood.  KP...is he still around or managing his Kambo forum?   

Re-reading all my old private messages going back 7 years or so :D

Why has activity on this site screeched to a halt?

First time posting in a long time...

Last year when I was still obsessing about iboga, I wondered the exact same thing.  I would say the key members of this forum that kept it alive are now gone or not posting regularly and creating the community spirit that kept this forum thriving from about 2010-2014 where you could log in everyday and check a new message.  I could name names but those who were on would know the regulars.  I was one of them and one of the most unruly and erratic posters that caused a lot of dissension.

Something had to give and I quit cold turkey by stop reading iboga forums.  I may have lurked a few times last year, but I think this guy summed up why I should quit iboga.  Read Farewell DMT and replace the DMT with iboga.  And the funny thing is that I'm still not able to stay off the drug forums by not lurking.

And you know to get over this, I would replace this whole online community with a real life community like Alcoholic Anonymous or Sex & Love Addicts which is a 12 step support group.  Actually I have been going to both groups almost every day for the past two months and am amazed how much it's affected me just from working the first 5 steps (don't have a sponsor, accountability, or done inventory yet).

What I found in AA that relates to iboga is that I have an "alcoholic mind" with iboga.  Last time I did a flood was back in 2009.  I've microdosed a few times during those years, but year after year, I kept on reading flood reports, every online iboga forum, kept up with every new post, done online activism to preserve iboga sustainability, talked to people casually about iboga.

While iboga isn't addictive as alcohol where you need a drink every day to function, the way the Big Book describes the "mental obsession" is what I've experienced with iboga.  I way way to obsessed to seek iboga as detoxing my mental patterns, wondering if I did another flood dose things would change, seeking that catharsis that many report after a flood.

Well after going to AA I didn't realize that there is the hard work of actually doing the steps.  You don't need a controlling spirit in a 3 day ordeal to show you all your faults and character defects, but can work with a sponsor over the process of working the steps and when you get to Step 9, you make amends to those you have caused harm.  There hasn't been anything like that on here, just people posting anecdotal experiences and talking about what supplements they changed or what spiritual practice they are doing.  You don't get to see people on a day to day basis and have accountability.

Facebook?

I've quit posting cold turkey for a year which was hard going through withdrawals by lurking multiple times a day.  These days I don't read any iboga forums other than checking here once in a while.  This was one of the best forums to discuss iboga back in the day compared to Mindvox or the FB forums which was just a lot of banter.

Has the demand for anonymous iboga discussion totally dropped?

I don't know, but I do know that a lot of psychedelic talk has gone over to reddit.  I'm still not over iboga and psychedelics because of the new trend of microdosing that started in 2015 and is getting more popular today.  I've tried that this year after replacing an SSRI and it worked quite well.  And now I'm trying to quit because I'm using the tools of sobriety of AA and the positive changes of general diet and exercise, and most importantly talking to God and having a daily relationship with Him which I haven't made a regular practice.

Mostly the talk is about microdosing mushrooms/LSD, but I did notice that there was people seeking iboga microdosing information.

Does it matter? Do we care?

Great questions, I've been wondering the same thing.  I'll start caring after I get to the 9th step and start doing inventory and making amends by posting here if this forum is still around something along the lines of changing my life controlling issues after being an iboga addict for 10 years or something.

I would not recommend Moughenda (Iboga House) nor Dimitri "Mobengo" Muguanis (Iboga Life) from Costa Rica.

Moughenda you can read on here as well as Dimitri, they offer services for people with $$$$ to spend.  I know there are plenty of people who had good experiences with them, but I had a run-in with Dimitri and was not impressed with him as a respectable shaman.  Recently I had talked to a woman who used to work with D in New York City a few years ago, and she confirmed my suspicions that he was doing shady stuff.   She eventually quit working with D.  These are some serious allegations of using your ego and power to promote your shamanism, something I am not fond of.  I felt like I was being ripped off from him and apparently there are allegations of him doing it to other clients that he treated.

But if you wish to see those individuals, it's still up to you.  I cannot in good conscious recommend Bwiti shamans, unless I know them personally.

I would check in with Paul Featherstone who commutes from the UK to Greece.  And other iboga healers (I cannot recommend anyone personally as I would need to know their work to do that)

Suffering sucks, so yeah it's not the most pleasant of human state of being, but we all go through it to varying degrees in our lives.

Kampum :  Glad to see you around, I really hope you stick around, believe it or not, I have missed you around here.. if you do plan to stick around could you please convince entheo_newbie to come back? ;)  Your information is valuable to us and I am about to get back to work every day here soon and just can't be here every day like I am able to in the winter.  We have had some wonderful new folks here lately and you could help out a lot.  I am very happy to see you posting and hope you are doing okay.

Much love,
lala

Same here!  I said it before, you are always welcome to come back and post here. :)

The most casual opiate habit I had was taking Vicodins for a week, recreationally.

Opiates aren't my vice.

But for opiate addicts detoxing on iboga....well ask JackTripper, he somehow got it to his head to do that casual thing again and that was his last relapse.

So be careful.  Ask a junkie that's been through it many times before....they will likely say, it's not a good idea to get loaded anymore.

And if you had the privilege to come across iboga in your life, I'd say it wouldn't be wise to go down the opiate path again.  Life isn't always so ideal though, because some people might need to use again for completely different reasons (surgery, accidental injury)
